If you say so. I was just somewhat surprised at the absence of stuff like Land Tax, Weathered Wayfarer and Solemn Simulacrum.NameIsRobertPaulson said:Most of my stuff is cheap enough I can survive on 3 lands, and Skullclamp, Necropotence, and Phyrexian Arena give me enough draw to find what I need. The huge amount of tutor really helps as well. I have considered using Dimir Machinations to accelerate the process.Manji187 said:Interesting. And here I thought there was no love for EDH on the Escapist.NameIsRobertPaulson said:I judge at my store's FNM, played on and off (Originally started in first Mirrodin, quit at Ravnica because of cost, rejoined at Zendikar and played since). I don't like the price creep of standard, so I play Modern, one deck in Vintage, and TONS of EDH.

Molten Psyche Burn Combo
Heartbeat of the Storm (Heartbeat of the Spring/Eye of the Storm combo)
Pyromancer's Ascention Combo
Hulk Flash OTK
My pride and joy, my Teysa EDH with my custom art (professional painter) Liliana of the Veil.
I also have a Teysa "Cannon fodder" deck, but my white weenies are mostly generated by blinking/ replaying creatures that have ETB token generation triggers.
From a technical standpoint, I'm curious though. Isn't 33 land a bit on the short side, also considering the fact that several of them enter the battlefield tapped? Moreover, there is virtually no way for you to get land, unless you draw into them or use tutors. Must be somewhat challenging, playing against decks containing green.
Dimir Machinations could fetch you Necropotence or Phyrexian Arena (or other 3 CMC things), so I guess it's not a bad choice.
